He shared a compelling story of how he encountered several years of failures even though God had promised him in 1976 that he will grant him success through his playwright gift. Prior to receiving this assurance from God, he had produced his first play in 1974 which was a failure. Uncle Ebo Whyte recounted how successive productions of his plays resulted in financial loses that included him losing his car and also ending up in debt on different occasions. Amidst the frustration, he mentioned that he went through times when he questioned whether God had really spoken to him to engage in these play-write ventures. He however indicated that throughout this period of failures he took on several jobs and worked diligently whiles trusting God for success in God’s own time. The breakthrough finally came in 2008 when God through one Mr. Charles Wireko who had earlier on provided him with an office space, wrote him a check of GHc5000 coincidentally at a time when he had received a story line for a play by divine inspiration from God when returning from a preaching assignment in a church, but had no money to produce. He recalled how Mr. Wireko pragmatically advised him to reconsider his decision to use the National Theater as venue for that particular production since previous plays had failed. He had suggested he went for a hall in the Accra Technical Training Center (A.T.T.C) which had a much smaller seating capacity that could serve the purpose. But he insisted on the National Theater because he was convinced God wanted him to use that venue. On the day of booking The National Theater, he recalled how the one in charge of the booking expressed shock at his decision to book the place for two shows in one day, a practice which he was told no one ever tried because of a fear of failure to sell out all tickets. Ebo Whyte narrated that he still insisted on the two shows because he was convinced God was speaking to him. To the Glory of God all tickets for the two plays were sold out by the Thursday before the weekend the event was scheduled to be held. He recounted how for the first time in the history of the National Theater two plays were held in a day with the theater packed to capacity for both plays. This commenced his journey to multiple successes. He explained that he drew inspiration from the life of Zechariah and Elizabeth who had to wait for years before they could have a child and encouraged all who may be feeling that God has disappointed them because of one delay or the other, to be patient and keep trusting God because God had never failed and will surely show up to bless and fulfill his word. To join many others to enjoy the great works of this prolific writer and director, purchase a ticket to see the festival of his plays showing this Christmas on the 25th December and also the 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th December,2018 at the National Theater.
